Guide Students’ Learning

  • Skills Checks. In the Learning Path for Ready to Go MyMathLab courses, each chapter begins with a brief assignment on the prerequisite skills needed for the chapter, giving students the chance to refresh and practice.
  • To-the-Point Objective Videos and MyMathGuide: Notes, Practice, and Video Path workbook are also the perfect resources for helping students learn the material.
  • Reading Checks at the beginning of each set of section exercises in the text ask students to demonstrate that they understand the material. They are incorporated in the Ready to Go Learning Path in MyMathLab and assignable in MyMathLab.
  • Active Learning Figuresare also a great resource to help students understand the concepts.

 

Reinforce Study Skills

  • Student Study Reference. This pull-out card at the front of the text is perforated, three-hole-punched, and binder-ready for convenient reference. It includes Your Guide to Success in Math course checklist, Student Organizer, and At a Glance (a list of key information and expressions for quick reference as students work exercises and review for tests).
  • Studying for Success. Checklists of study skills—designed to ensure that students develop the skills they need to succeed in math, school, and life—are integrated throughout the text at the beginning of selected sections.

 

MyMathLab not included. Students, if MyMathLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyMathLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

 

Improve Results With MyMathLab®: the Bittinger courses include all of MyMathLab’s robust features, plus these additional highlights.

  • Two MyMathLab course options are now available:
    • Standard MyMathLab courses allow instructors to build their courses their way, offering maximum  flexibility and control over all aspects of assignment creation. 
    • Ready to Go courses provide students with all the same great MyMathLab features, but also make it easier for instructors to get started with pre-built AND pre-assigned assignments. The Ready to Go courses also feature a new four-step Learning Path: 1.) Learn the Skills and Concepts, 2.) Check Your Understanding, 3.) Do Your Homework, 4.) Review and Test Your Understanding.
  • Increased coverage of skill-building, conceptual, and applications exercises, as well as new assignable Guided-Solution exercises, Skill Checks, and Reading Checks.
  • Active Learning Figures, available for key concepts, foster conceptual understanding and are especially helpful for visual and tactile learners. Instructors can create media assignments with the figures.
  • Bittinger Video Program includes all new To-the-Point Objective Videos and Chapter Test Prep Videos. To-the-Point Objective Videos include newInteractive Your Turn Exercises, where students solve exercises and receive instant feedback on their work.  The videos also can be used hand-in-hand with the new MyMathGuide workbook.
  • MyMathGuide: Notes, Practice, and Video Path is an objective-based workbook (available in print and in MyMathLab) that provides guided, hands-on learning. It offers vocabulary, skill, and concept review —along with problem-solving practice, where students can fill-in the steps to guided solution problems. It can be used together with the To-the-Point Objective Video program—and students can fill-in steps as they watch the videos, listen to the instructor lecture, or read the textbook. It is a loose-leaf workbook with space to show work, write notes, and can serve as a good foundation for a hybrid or self-paced course notebook or lecture notes. MyMathGuide is incorporated into the Learning Path of the Ready to Go courses.
  • Accessibility Enhancements continue Pearson’s commitment to make products accessible to as many students as possible. This latest course release is compatible with the JAWS screen reader enabling print-disabled students to access and interact with numerous problems as noted by an icon within the assignment manager. The course also works with the ZoomText enlarger, and includes an HTML eBook that is compatible with JAWS and other Windows screen readers, allowing all students to access the same text, at the same place, and at the same price. Additionally, all videos include closed captioning.
  • Student Success Module in MyMathLab. This new, interactive module is available in the left-hand navigation of MyMathLab and includes videos, activities, and post-tests for these three student success areas: 
    • Math-Reading Connections, including topics such as Using Word Clues, and Looking for Patterns. 
    • Study Skills, including topics such as Time Management and Preparing for and Taking Exams.
    • College Success, including topics such as College Transition and Online Learning.
    • Instructors can assign these videos and/or activities as media assignments, along with pre-built post-tests to make sure students learn and understand how to improve their skills in these areas. Instructors can integrate these assignments with their traditional MyMathLab homework assignments to incorporate student success topics into their course as they deem appropriate.

Guide Students’ Learning—Students are encouraged to use Your Guide to Success in Math, a four-step Learning Path and checklist available in the front of the text and incorporated into the Ready to Go MyMathLab courses. The guide will help students identify the resources in the textbook, supplements, and MyMathLab that support their learning style.

  • Step 1: Learn the Skills and Concepts—Students have several options for learning and practicing the math concepts.
    • NEW! Skills Checks. In the Learning Path for Ready to Go MyMathLab courses, each chapter begins with a brief assignment on the prerequisite skills needed for the chapter, giving students the chance to refresh and practice.
    • Textbook / eText. The textbook or eText is a great starting point for students to learn the material. It includes the hallmark Bittinger pedagogy with Skill to Review exercises at the start of each section, and  Margin Exercises, plus NEW! Guided Solutions. The Guided Solution exercises are select margin exercises within the text that allow students to fill-in the blanks to learn how to work through the problem. These problem types are also assignable in MyMathLab, where the exercises are broken down into smaller steps for students to fill-in as they work through the problem.
    • The NEW! To-the-Point Objective Videos and NEW! MyMathGuide: Notes, Practice, and Video Path workbook are also the perfect resources for helping students learn the material.
  • Step 2: Check Your Understanding—Students have frequent opportunities to check their work and confirm that they understand skills and concepts before moving on:
    • NEW! Reading Checks at the beginning of each set of section exercises in the text ask students to demonstrate that they understand the material. They are incorporated in the Ready to Go Learning Path in MyMathLab and assignable in MyMathLab.
    • NEW! Active Learning Figuresare also a great resource to help students understand the concepts.
  • Step 3: Do Your Homework—The text andMyMathLab courses have a wealth of proven and updated exercises, including the new assignable exercises in MyMathLab described above.
